BETTE’S CAITLYN JOKE BACKFIRES

In Touch (USA) - - Omg -

When Bette Mi­dler heard that E! had can­celed Caitlyn Jen­ner’s re­al­ity show, the famed singer tweeted “Now that @Iam­cait has been can­celled, will she go back to be­ing Bruce?” on Aug. 20. Many fans didn’t find it funny, and the back­lash was fast and fu­ri­ous. “Crit­i­cize Caitlyn [Jen­ner] for s--- she does, not who she is,” scolded one, while others ac­cused her of “trans­pho­bia.” The sharp-tongued 70-yearold apol­o­gized the very next day: “SORRY LAST TWEET OFFENDED. AN IDLE MUSING.”
